- clean, accurate, not a hot load Review by Fwank
This appears to be the newest version of the old Federal 9P1 load, which they created for law enforcement agencies in European jurisdictions where hollowpoint handgun ammunition was forbidden even to *das Polizei.* Back in, oh, 1976, or thereabouts, this was cutting-edge personal defense bullet design.
The specs on this load vary a lot from batch to batch. It uses an odd little 95-grain "softpoint" bullet with a tiny little button of exposed lead. It doesn't really look like it would expand in soft tissue--and usually it doesn't, but if it does it might be a little better than FMJ. Published specs are 1360 f.p.s. muzzle velocity, which must have been measured from a 10" SMG barrel because from service pistols it's usually more like 1250. Some handguns may or may not cycle a load this light with 100% reliability, in particular SIG and first-gen Glocks that had the heavy recoil spring.
But it's clean shooting ammo, and mostly accurate and consistent. Though it was originally designed for antipersonnel work, 30+ years have passed since its introduction and far better choices are available to those who contemplate anything more serious than punching holes in paper targets and tin cans.
